Heronswood Gardens, May 2012. Just Pictures. Part 1 of 4


 "Heronswood is a botanical garden in Kingston, Washington, the United States, that was established by Dan Hinkley and Robert Jones in 1987. Heronswood exhibits plant varieties that are collected and propagated for introduction into the North American nursery trade. The display garden has been featured internationally as an example of environmentally sensitive and botanically impressive plantsmanship. The real estate and nursery business associated with it were bought by the W. Atlee Burpee Company. The display garden opens to the public on special occasions." (Wikipedia).

  6. Wonderful pictures, Tatiana. I love the sun rays dropping through the branches and leaves, making the light shadows.
